Merry Christmas from 1906

I found the item pictured below in a drawer in my Dad's basement that was loaded with at least 50% random junk that was eventually pitched.
My great-grandfather Edward C. Williams worked for the Wales Adding Machine Company ( Wilkes-Barre, PA ) in his early years. Absent anyone to ask or any back-up documentation, and after much discussion, we decided this was a Christmas gift from his employer to be hung/displayed as an ornament. That worked for me, and we've placed it on our tree every year since finding it.
Merry Christmas
